Summary

In the spring of 1972 a twenty-year-old kid from California took off to see the world. His journeys led him down the East African coast and across several oceans to a magical Caribbean island and the building of a beautiful boat. This schooner, christened Water Pearl, was owned in part by the legendary musician Bob Dylan. "I'm either on the West Coast or in New York or down in the Caribbean. Me and another guy own a boat down there," he once said. Finally, after forty years, here is the story of how through a cosmic chain of events this remarkable tale came to pass.

    Jesus, Betrayer of Jesus, is solely based on The Holy Bible. Representing a new and innovative genre of Bible literature, this book is a scripturally-based, yet fictionally portrayed, account about Judas Iscariot, written from the perspective of the man who betrayed Jesus the Christ. The first chapter theorizes on why Judas betrayed Jesus. The second chapter focuses on how Judas betrays Jesus. The third chapter shares with readers his regret for, plus damnable consequences of, betraying Jesus. Many lessons can be learned and applied to our lives today from the man whose name, according to the third chapter, "will be vilified, be identified with deceit, and be associated with betrayal."

    A moving memoir of a son's relationship with his survivor father and of their Eastern European journey through a family history of incalculable loss.Jason Sommer's father, Jay, is ninety-eight years old and losing his memory. More than seventy years after arriving in New York from WWII-torn Europe, he is forgetting the stories that defined his life, the life of his family, and the lives of millions of Jews who were affected by Nazi terror. Observing this loss, Jason vividly recalls the trip to Eastern Europe the two took together in 2001. As father and son travel from the town of Jay's birth to the labor camp from which he escaped, and to Auschwitz, where many in his family were lost, the stories Jason's father has told all his life come alive. So too do Jason's own memories of the way his father's past complicated and impacted Jason's own inner life. Shmuel's Bridge shows history through a double lens: the memories of a growing son's complex relationship with his father and the meditations of that son who, now grown, finds himself caring for a man losing all connection to a past that must not be forgotten.
